Northern Walkway

A 16km walk, taking at least 4 hours to complete.

Tree Removals on Tinakori Hill

Trees that pose a safety risk will be removed from the Weld Street entrance to Te Ahumairangi/Tinakori Hill from Monday 17 November. The work is expected to take five weeks.

The reserve will remain open, but access will be limited. A section of the Northern walkway will be closed and an alternative route will be sign posted.

The walkway starts in Johnsonville and follows the outer Green Belt via Mount Kaukau to the Town Belt in Te Ahumairangi Hill (Tinakori Hill) and the Botanic Garden.
